Limbaugh's Comparison: Getting it Reich

Limbaugh compares this symbol to a swastika. Sheesh.

Limbaugh compares this symbol to the Obama Administation's health care logo. Sheesh.

So Limbaugh lashed out because Pelosi claimed teabaggers were employing Nazi symbols as part of their health care agitation. (If there’s any doubt of the latter, by the way, just these two recent BNN posts offer examples at hand – 1, 2.) At this point, however — because Rush is the leading voice of the GOP, I guess — the media is all over the story necessitating all kinds of push back, including some pretty straight forward visual analysis.

You see the close parallel, don’t you?
